About Dr. Suzette

I hold the following degrees: a BA, MA, PSY.S and a Ph.D. And my major areas of study are Psychology, Sign Language, and Special Education- Learning Disabilities.

I am currently an Educational Psychologist, who teaches Psychology and Sign Language courses at Waukesha County Technical College. I also work with several private-sector programs related to sign language, mentoring, diversity and special education.

I have taught distance education courses and workshops in ASL linguistics, special education, and disability issues throughout the Midwest and at the national level. I am also a national certified Sign Language Instructor and state certified master consultant and trainer who enjoys working with families and very young children teaching them how to utilize American Sign Language with pre-verbal babies.

I also have the following qualifications: 20 + years of direct teaching, evaluating, and mentoring with Special Education students, ASL/Interpreter students, working interpreters, and/or community business members whom use American Sign Language for communicating with their consumers. And I have an excellent rapport with special needs children/adults, language minorities, and/or other special communication disorders. I also am an excellent professional who has experienced personal success with teaching, evaluating, and development of natural ASL skills for many state, national, and/or in-school exams.

If you are looking for more in-depth, specialized academic supports, and/or specific areas of Interpreting/ ASL development, Dr. Garay is one of the BEST private online resources out there!
